Aidan has been studying the Roman Empire in history, and we read that they created a lot of mosaics to decorate their buildings. We bought a bag of 15 bean soup mix a while back to use for a project, so we decided to make a mosaic with beans!

We used some heavy cardboard cut from the side of a box because I didn’t want it to warp with all the glue and beans! Aidan decided to make a rhino like his Playmobil one. He drew the rhino in pencil first (with only a little help from me on the head!), and then started gluing!

Here is our finished product! This was a fun project, and I’m planning to try a simpler version with Gresham.

    I really like the idea of using cardboard to keep it from bending. This is my first visit. Love your tag line!!!

        Found you through your post on Spring Break activities on Keeping the Kingdom First blog. I love your projects and plan to implement some of them when my daughter is a bit older.
